At For Impact | The Suddes Group each team member is or has been an entrepreneur. Collectively, we’ve started over 30 companies… failed at some… succeeded at others. Much of what you read at ForImpact.org is really entrepreneurial thinking – applied to the For Impact world.
Our fire and passion for the entrepreneurial spirit has led to some great relationships with young social entrepreneurs who are changing the world through StartingBloc, Sparkseed, Ashoka Youth Ventures and The Unreasonable Institute.
Teju and Nikil, two Unreasonable Institute founders, first joined us at one of our boot camps two years ago. Since then, we’ve been active mentors to the UI team and UI fellows. While we’re supposed to be guiding and leading based on our experience I think we probably get more out of the relationship from the fellows and from the ‘unreasonable vibe’ in Boulder. It’s completely invigorating to be a part of accelerator community.
Kerry was in Boulder yesterday. She led a kickoff session for 27 fellows from 11 countries… sharing with them the Impact drives Income message and challenging them to Think Big, Build Simple, Act Now. Tom will be out there in a few weeks helping the young entrepreneurs seek clarity around their business models and source start-up capital.
These young entrepreneurs… most of whom already have a viable product… will spend the next 10 weeks together in Boulder working with seasoned entrepreneurs… cranking up the audacity of their visions and hopefully leaving with networks, skills and financing they need to help them change the world.
Follow along this summer by watching Unreasonable.TV. Be inspired with us at For Impact while we watch these bold young entrepreneurs grow, learn and change the world.
